It appears no one is safe from an Alex Khouri spike so anyone inside the gym when his arm swings forward better be on high alert.
While most people were bemoaning the fact that Old Man Winter dumped a foot of snow across the Lehigh Valley on the first full day of spring, Kate Yadush was excited to take advantage of some late-season skiing.
“I love the powder,” said Yadush about the chance to ski on the newly-fallen snow.
And as people dug out from the fourth Nor-Easter, Kate and her family hit the slopes, a place where the Whitehall middle schooler feels at home.
On Sunday, the Philadelphia Flyers had a one-goal lead as they looked to fight their way back into their best-of-seven series with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
With the Flyers up 4-2, Pittsburgh scored five straight goals, including four by Jake Guentzel, and went on to eliminate the Flyers in six games with an 8-5 win.
Weather permitting, this weekend brings a smorgasbord of hunting and angling opportunities.
Spring gobbler hunting season opens April 28 in Pennsylvania and at the same time, shad have started their spawning run up the Delaware River. And right behind them, striped bass are entering the lower Delaware River and all along the New Jersey shore during their spring spawn run.
Logan Kreglow isn’t satisfied sitting on the sidelines.
He wants to be in the athletic arena, something that was in jeopardy a few years ago, and that experience has led him to seize the opportunity to test his skills against other athletes from across the country.
The Phantoms wrapped up a season that saw them not only qualify for the playoffs for the second straight season, but also win their first Atlantic Division title since moving to the Lehigh Valley. They’ve got home ice advantage throughout the divisional playoffs and would only lose that advantage in the Eastern Conference playoffs if they were to face the Toronto Marlies, the AHL’s top team.
Dylan Cozens is feeling it again.
After an abysmal 2017 campaign, the right-fielder is looking confident at the plate and making contact. Monday night’s three-run blast in the sixth inning proved to be the clinching runs to seal another IronPig victory.
It may be early, but the confidence is a refreshing presence at the plate and reminiscent of his 2016 season in Reading.
The Whitehall boys volleyball team had a busy weekend, traveling north to tackle a couple of District 2 denizens.
They played a tri-match against Tunkhannok and Delaware Valley, emerging victorious in both matches. Those two victories raised their record to 7-1 this season.
Their first match was against Tunkhannock and head coach George Cowitch said that they handled the Tigers in three sets. In that match, Dylan McGinley had 10 kills and three blocks, while Alex Khouri had eight kills and four blocks.
The Whitehall boys tennis team tried to flip the script against Parkland on Saturday, but the Trojans retained the upper hand, knocking the Zephyrs from the ranks of the unbeaten.
Parkland won the match 5-1, sweeping all singles matches as they extended their winning streak over the Zephyrs. With the loss, Whitehall is now 11-1.
For a brief moment, the sun broke through the clouds at Northampton’s baseball field, showcasing the home run trot of Ben Antonchak as he crossed home plate.
Before that inning, the snow had been falling, the wind was whipping, and conditions didn’t seem favorable for a ball to leave the yard. But Antonchak took an outside pitch and drove it to right, sending the Whitehall bench into a frenzy once it sailed over the fence. His grand slam in the top of the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie, helping lead the Zephyrs to a 8-1 win over the Kids.
